We all look for heaven and we put our love first

Firstly,  Happy Halloween!

 Can you believe its like Halloween already?  This year is absolutely flying.  It's practically Christmas but I can't talk about that because I'll get too excited!  Hope you all have a fantastic halloween anyway.  I'm just staying in because I'm reallllly boring.

Anyway, on with the post, I thought I'd blog about two of the Kate Moss collection lipsticks I've recently bought that have taken over the blogger community by storm.  I saw on a blog (that i can't remember now, sorry!) that the Kate Moss lipsticks were on offer at Asda for £4.  Since I live relatively close to an Asda I thought I'd definitely have to pop in and pick one up.  I'd had my eye on 107 - from the new Kate Moss Matte Collection and without swatching it, I swooped it up and headed to the checkout.  In the car on the way home, I swatched it on my hand and instantly fell in love.  It's such an on-trend, perfect plum, matte colour.  When I actually put it on my lips, I was quite disappointed.  I love love love the lipstick but I just don't think it suits me.  I'm a bit scared of it actually, it's just so bold.  I'm hoping I can grow to love how it looks on me as I really don't want to waste it.

08 (I hate the numbers - why can't they have names?!) was a treat off my boyfriend actually.  We were getting some lunch in Tesco when he threw this in the basket.  Again, the lipstick was £4 and I actually think they're still on offer at the moment if you fancy grabbing yourself a little treat!  I'm trying to get more in to nudey-ish lipsticks for the winter as i'm usually a pink lipstick enthusiast.  I can't really explain this colour, it's like nude but a little bit pink.  It looks so much nicer on the lips and with a dark smokey eye, it looks amazing.  I'm shocked that I like this so much to be honest,  I didn't think I'd ever find a lipstick colour I liked more than pink.

I'm now off to Boots to swatch lots of lipsticks and possibly buy things that I shouldn't.

  3. Indeed time is flying.. :)

    Both shades look great! Maybe you could mix a bit of both - that’s what I do when I really want to try something new. You can apply 08 in the normal way you wear lipstick & then dab a little of 107 on top of it to tone it up, making it fresh. I usually use my ring finger for dabbing. :)

    I purchased Clarins 704 at Dubai airport since I was travelling by Emirates & loved the different shades of Reds the airhostesses were wearing. It was a suggestion of one of the airhostesses. Now this is such a bold shade of red but I can’t resist wearing it so I dab it on top of another lipstick to tone it down a little.

    Let me know how it turns out on you. :)


  4. ooh I've been meaning to pick one of these up, the range looks so nice!

    - ordaining serendipity

  5. I love both these shades - I've got an obsession with the kate moss shades, i really want shade 101 which is a nudey shade one,

    I currently have the red and its gorrrgeous.

  6. 107 is sold out everywhere near me :( x
